Game Week - Quoting Carroll

SCPlayBook caught up with Pete Carroll after practice on Monday to get his thoughts on the upcoming game.

On Game Week
"Now that it's game week for us, everybody is really fighting to get out here for their practice reps and make a bid for themselves for game time. That's a real good feeling, real competitive feeling again out here today."

On the Running Backs
"Well, it looked good today. Allen Bradford got back. CJ Gable was running good today, Stafon's full tempo…..Joe (McKnight) got some work today, took some service team period plays, ran a couple of punts back. So, he's getting close too."

On Chauncey Washington
"Chauncey's not ready to go yet….He doesn't look like he's going to make this week. So we will take the next week to get him right and then look forward to the following game week."

On Joe McKnight
"He's not cleared for contact. But he's cleared to run and make his moves and do all that kind of stuff. They just want to take it one day at a time and see how strong he is."

On Mark Sanchez
"It doesn't look like Mark's going to make it back. And again with him not getting back gives him a whole other week to heal. And I think it's real important just letting that thing quiet down. If he had to play he probably could this week. But he would be so sore the next week that it would mess him up."

On Nick Holt Facing His Former Team
"He'll be chomping at the bit to get out of that locker room. We'll have to cool him down a little bit, maybe throw some water on him or something."
